Solution

- The development of roads and railways makes the region more accessible.
- Such areas provide favourable conditions for the development and manufacturing industries, which generate employment. Therefore, people from different areas migrate in search of jobs. Thus, such areas become densely populated. For example, the Gangetic plain of India, where the density of roads and railways is highest in India.
- Population increases in port cities due to the availability of sea transport for the development of trade. Therefore, the coastal region is densely populated. For example, many port cities like Chennai, Mumbai are developed on the east and west coast of India.
- Thus, the population increases because of transportation facilities.
